St Joseph's Rotherhithe


Anne Frank Class


  Hello, and welcome to  Anne Frank Class’ page!

I am Miss Griffey and I am the Year 4 teacher. I look forward to working with you and your children this year! Please do look through our diary at all the exciting things we are getting up to this year!


Here are some of our weekly routines: 


Homework is assigned on google classroom every Friday and is to be completed by the following Wednesday. It will consist of one piece of literacy and one piece of numeracy per week.


Year 4 children will also be given a new weekly spelling rule and times tables every Monday which should be practised every night in their spelling and time tables record books. They will need to learn these by Friday when they will be tested.


In St. Joseph's we recognise that reading is of the utmost importance for our children, that is why we have built 30 minutes of reading into our timetable Monday-Wednesday as well as a daily 3pm read. On top of this, we ask you as parents to read with your child every night for 30 minutes.


PE will take place every Wednesday afternoon. We ask that you send your children to school in full PE kit that day.


If you have any queries please do not hesitate to come and see me after school. I
am always happy to see you!
Thank you again for your continued support.
